Vintage Ohio Wine Festival! 

This is my 8th year as the coordinator for the chef culinary tent at vintage Ohio Wine Festival at Lake Metroparks Farm Park.

Each year our Chef culinary tent has grown to Extraordinary Measures. My sponsors and other big companies have really stepped up to ensure that we have everything we need and have some amazing giveaways for the attendees!

I have four shows both August 5th and 6th. Myself along with local Fred Stolt from Cleveland Ohio who has been with me almost every year and then I bring in two other from across the United States...

Special this year I am actually providing a dessert after the last demonstration each day from a new and upcoming local Baker, Amy Joy's sweet Confections. She uses Prime ingredients and local products as much as she can to create beautiful desserts. This is my gift to all of you who attend along with of course all of the giveaways

This year I have Mike McCourt who uses Blackstone products from Virginia, and I also have Charles Haring who is actually one of my team members from my competition barbecue team

Demonstrations are 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 4:30 p.m..
